Welcome back football fanatics! Before I give ya’ll my predictions I just want to touch on Johnny Football’s performance last week. People are getting ready to write this guy off as a “bust” and saying he’ll never make it in the NFL. Really? The guy has made ONE start in the league, with a struggling team desperately needing a win. Will he be a great quarterback? Probably not. But are we jumping to conclusions, and writing this guy off far too soon? Absolutely. If there is a place in this league for guys like Geno Smith, Mark Sanchez, and Jimmy Clausen, then there is absolutely a place for Manziel. Oh and by the way, lets not forget about Peyton Manning’s rookie season and how poorly he performed. All right….enough defending my boy, and on to the picks for Week 16.

DESMOND: GIANTS’ FUTURE NOT SO BLUE THANKS TO KING ODELL

Move over Victor Cruz, there’s a new king of New York.

And thank God he has come to play. After missing the first four games of the season, Odell Beckham Jr. has become an explosive catalyst for the Giants’ offense, hauling in a franchise record 71 catches for 972 yards and nine touchdowns as a rookie. He’s even got his own meme, a viral response to his sensational catch against the Cowboys on Nov. 23. Continue reading DESMOND: GIANTS’ FUTURE NOT SO BLUE THANKS TO KING ODELL

Sanson: 5 Reasons Why We Don’t Want Head (ley)

By TED SANSON
Deadset Against Head

Typically, head is something we covet. It’s something we’ll pay for, beg, borrow, and steal. We fantasize about it while we twiddle our thumbs at work or sit in Rt. 46 traffic. Head is like a good pair of jeans – it goes well with almost anything.

For Yankee fans, however, “Head” is something we do not want. We avoid it like we avoided the toothless lunch lady in grammar school. We avoid it like a vampire avoids sunlight. Continue reading Sanson: 5 Reasons Why We Don’t Want Head (ley)

Adventures in Tinderland

Our story begins a few days before New Year’s Eve, 2014. As a Jewish girl who grew up in the Christian haven that is Sussex County, it goes without saying that I am lacking in the department of Jewish friends. The week surrounding Christmas is usually quite boring for me. Everyone is busy with his or her families celebrating the baby Jesus and stuff, so I typically have a lot of time to myself. During this particular bout of me-time, I made a very important decision about my love life. Continue reading Adventures in Tinderland

Sanson: The 11 Icons of the Yankee Dynasty, Part I

Pinstriped Freak Since 1989

With New York’s Giants and Jets being a bigger embarassment than a pregnant, naked Kardashian and Derek Jeter’s magnificent playing career in the rearview, what better time to reflect on one of the most legendary dynasties in the history of American sport?

You know exactly who I’m talking about…. Continue reading Sanson: The 11 Icons of the Yankee Dynasty, Part I

Wukitsch: Week 15 NFL Spread Predictions

Week 15 starts with me being as happy as I’ve been all season. Two reasons: my Titans suck and are front runners to get Amari Cooper, giving the Titans a playmaking wideout they’ve lacked since Derrick Mason, and secondly, it’s Johnny Manziel time in Cleveland! JFF is taking the Browns to the Super Bowl, just watch. Now for the picks. Continue reading Wukitsch: Week 15 NFL Spread Predictions

Desmond: New Conduct Policy Puts Goodell In Spotlight….Again

By SAMANTHA DESMOND

After several months of media frenzy, and plenty of Commissioner Roger Goodell running around with his tail between his legs, the NFL announced Wednesday that the 32 league owners unanimously voted in a new personal conduct policy.

It only took them three months. That is, three months after the scandal blew up in their faces. It’s been nearly ten months since Rice struck his then-fiancé in a casino elevator on Feb. 15. The incident only played out in the media once security footage was released in September. Continue reading Desmond: New Conduct Policy Puts Goodell In Spotlight….Again
